    The Secretary of the State and the Attorney General Warn Connecticut Businesses about “Official” Reporting Scam

     


    HARTFORD – Secretary of the State Denise Merrill and Attorney General George Jepsen are warning businesses across Connecticut about a mailing being sen
    t by “Workplace Compliance Services” purporting to be an official “Annual Report Instruction Form,” alleging that payment is required by Connecticut law. A copy of the form is attached.

     

    “Businesses registered with the state of Connecticut are only required by law to file Annual Reports with our office,” said Secretary Merrill, Connecticut’s chief business registrar. “There is no legal requirement for any business to file the form they received from Workplace Compliance Services, or to pay the inflated fee indicated.”

     

    "This scam targets small businesses and, unfortunately, resurfaces every few years in an attempt to cheat hardworking business owners," said Attorney General George Jepsen. "Scams like this one try to appear legitimate, but business owners shouldn't fall for it. Tell your employees to be on the lookout, and whenever in doubt about a suspicious mailing, call the Secretary of State or my office to verify legitimacy before sending any payment."

    This deceptive solicitation has an “official” appearance and references a Connecticut state law. This scam directs the recipient business to send an inflated fee for filing an Annual Report that can be filed directly with the state at ct.gov/annualreport.

     

    Secretary Merrill said, “If you are ever unsure about the legitimacy of a business filing notice you receive, please contact my office at 860-509-6003 or email us at crd@ct.gov. We are ready and eager to help any Connecticut business owner.”

     

    If your business has received the bogus “Annual Report Instruction Form” form, please make a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General at attorney.general@ct.gov, including a copy of the mailing, as an investigation into the mailing in coordination with the U.S. Postal Inspector is underway.
